Sorry I didn’t post on Friday.. Liam was sick and I stayed home with him so I could take him to the doctor 😦 He sure didn’t seem too sick, but I noticed he had a stuffy nose and he had some goop coming out of his eye when he first woke up.
At first I was just going to stay home with him and call the doctor to see if I should be giving him something. But when I told them he had goop coming out of his eye they said to bring him in because he might have an infection. Of course when they said infection I immediately thought oh no he has a terrible infection and he is going to have to go to the hospital.. Obviously the nurse on the phone had meant pink eye… So off to the doctor we went.
Erik asked me if I wanted him to come with us.. and obviously I did, sooo he left work and came 🙂 While at thedoctor Liam was his usual smiley happy self. The doctor checked him out and said that his lungs, ears and throat where all clear and that he just had a little cold. The eye goop was most likely from a blocked tear duct because he was so congested… it happens to me a lot so it’s not surprising that it happened to him.
After the appointment, I took him over to my momma’s house to hang out with my grandma and sister.. He slept most of the time. My sister wanted me to go prom dress shopping with her, and because Liam was in good spirits we went. Liam had his first trip to the mall 🙂 He was so alert the whole time, looking around at all the lights.
We got home and hung out with Erik’s family for a bit before I tired to put him down to sleep for the night.. He was not happy. Every time I would put him down in his crib he was cry 😦 So Erik and I took shifts holding him while he slept. I took the first shift, he slept from 11pm to 2 am then woke up screaming bloody murder! I was terrified.. Poor little guy was really hot and had a fever. We took his temporal temperature and it registered between 99 and 100, so we decided to take a rectal temperature. He didn’t like that one bit…. It was 100.8.. we got nervous and called the pediatrician. Luckily they always have an on call doctor.. It took them about an hour to get back to us but in that time we took another rectal temp and it had gone down to 100.4. I looked it up and found that rectal temperatures can range from 97-100.3. We told the on call doctor and she said that because I had taken him into the office earlier that day and he was still eating, we could make an appointment in the morning to take him in.
Again we love our pediatrician’s office, they have Saturday office hours. To all the moms to be, make sure your pediatrician has an on call doctor and Saturday office hours :).
The doctor looked at him again, he had a slight temperature of 99.9, but his lungs, ears and throat were all clear so she said just to keep sucking boogers out of his nose, and giving him lots of love. PS if you do not have the Nose Frida, you need it.. (the links are my own amazon Affiliates links, help a sister out 🙂 )
Sounds really nasty but it is total fine, you can’t even suck hard enough for anything to come remotely close to the filter.. or well at least I can’t. Anyway, so we bought that and some saline sucked out his boogies and he has been his smiley self since.Do you love his new sweat suit? My mom’s best friend got it for him from baby gap. He is the best. Saturday afternoon we went over to Sundeep and Nalini’s house for a little cocktail party.. Liam was watching all the people drinking and having fun.. he was cute. It was so loud and he loved it.. he was trying to talk over everyone, it was adorable.
I hope everyone has a great day!
